and implicit in is what the u.n. ambassador susan rice said on television in that five days later actually about it being a spontaneous demonstration responding to the video, a copycat demonstration of what had happened earlier in cairo was not correct, and then they in turn from the u.n. mission keep saying there was an intelligence memo and everyone is standing in a circle pointing the finger elsewhere. >> it has the same sort of ethos of what happened after 9/11. when you go back and look -- the original 9/11, a lot of data points that might have been able to point to a danger here, point to some issues related to security. we see this now because this was a country that had been involved in historic revolution, had been a hot spot and we're being told that ambassador stevens had wanted greater security. some discussion about when the duty date for some of the members of that security team had expired that he had requested more, that was not done. some of the issues about resources, about judgments made at the time. now that something this awful has occurred, it puts a different light o
contradictory public statements by the president, the secretary of state and the u.n. ambassador on libyan terrorist attacks. state department officials telling a house investigative committee that they never told anyone in the obama administration or anyone else for that matter, the terrorist attacks in benghazi were linked in any way whatsoever to an anti-muslim internet video. a video that the president himself over a three-week period of the cause of those attacks. someone in the administration is clearly not telling the truth. the house oversight committee chairman, darrell issa, is not pleased. the president cannot be pleased. the public statements are contravened by both evidence and testimony now before the oversight committee. listen to secretary of state hillary clinton's remarks at andrews air force base at the return of the ceremonies for the four americans murdered in benghazi. >> we have seen rage and violence directed at american embassies over an awful, internet video that we had nothing to do it. it is hard for the american people to make sense of that, because it is sense

not be deployed without u.n. approval. then in the mid 1980's, he ran on the basis of cutting most of our major defense programs. in 1991, he voted against desert storm. it's a consistent pattern over time of always being on the wrong side of defense issues. a little tough talk in the midst of a campaign or as part of a presidential debate cannot obscure a record of 30 years of being on the wrong side of defense issues. and they give absolute no ibbed case based on that record of being willing to go forward and aggressively pursue the war on terror with the kind of strategy that will defeat our enemies and will guarantee the united states doesn't get attacked by the likes of al qaeda. >> we'll get back to that topic. tonight we mentioned afghanistan. we believe that osama bin laden is hiding perhaps in a cave somewhere along the afghan-pakistan border. if you get a second term, what is your plan to capture him? and then to neutralize those who have sprong up to replace him? >> when we have -- we've never let up on osama bin laden from day one. we've actual live pursued him. we've captured thous

support to the whole country, u.s. employees and the whole country, and eric n nordstrom asking for more security and his responses were unanswered and they said they wanted to keep the security presence to a minimum. >> elise, let me stop you there because i'm going to play what andy wood said to cbs news. >> sure. >> -- for enhanced or continued security that we had, that we had known, that we had come to live with and work with there for the environment we had, we felt we needed more, not less. >> $64,000 question, of course, is so why would requests like that go unheard and unanswered? >> that's the big question. when asked who said that, he said the state department superiors. and there is one woman testifying today, charlene lamb, deputy assistant secretary, where it seemed that the buck stopped with her and she was the one that said, you know, need to keep the security to a minimum. soledad, what officials are saying is, listen, there was security improvements made to the consulate, to the office, over the last several months, leading up to the attack because there were other atta
, the ambassador to the u.n., susan rice, you have this state department comments coming out. now we come out to find that those were absolutely not true. they are somewhere between totally false and absolutely not true. it's certainly -- >> i think that that's an exaggeration, congressman. >> no. >> let's play them then. >> what is true about what she said? >> let's first play the -- what ambassador rice had to say. i think she's the one who went on september 16th on "meet the press" went further than everybody. bedon't have that clip. she said she believed it looked like it was connected to protests. she went the furthest. but jay carney, i think that was on september 18th, actually said something not going quite as far. i think we have her sound bite. let's play the ambassador first. >> putting together the best information that we have available to us today, our current assessment is that what happened in benghazi was, in fact, initially a spontaneous reaction to what had just transpired hours before in chiropractor r cairo. almost a copycat demonstrations against our facility in cairo pr
of state hillary clinton and the u.n. ambassador, susan rice. so what are they going to say? there is a separation between those two and the rest of the state department and the white house? what side will they be on? >> steve: because to many, it looks like there has been some sort of cover-up going on and hillary clinton at the ends of her tenure as secretary of state, the last thing she wants, 'cause she wants to run for president, is a full blown scandal. but that's what -- >> gretchen: the last thing president obama wants as well is a full blown scandal 27 days from the election. >> steve: sure. but the thing is if her state department is out there, you know, pushing through susan rice, it was spontaneous, it was about the movie when it wasn't, the one thing that hillary is on the griddle for responsibility wise is the security. would they all be dead today if they had the proper security? a lot of people are asking themselves that. >> brian: right. by the way, i am looking for a scandal. so if you're interested. by the way, mitt romney was getting -- he's getting more
including u.s. ambassador to the u.n., did interview after interview connecting the attack to anger over a movie. bill: want to start with peter doocy live in washington. the why is the state department now saying the attack not spontaneous? >> reporter: because lethality and number of armed attackers is unprecedented in recent diplomatic history. plus there was no protest in front of consulate on the night of the attack. the people inside the compound heard explosions before 9:00 p.m. >> we have no information to suggest that it was a plea planned attack. -- preplanned attack. it is not reaction to the 9/11 anniversary that we know of. >> in fact this was not a preplanned, premeditated attack. >> reporter: we know the administration did internally classify as a terrorist attack within 24 hours. we expect to hear a lot more three hours from now in a house oversight committee hearing just across the street that is being billed simply as the security failures of benghazi. bill. bill: i'm looking at four witnesses. any heads up what they will say, peter? >> we heard a little bit from two of
them, and i think there were a couple of very important moments. that came essentially from the u.n. ambassador, susan rice, and in the testimony by ambassador patrick kennedy, which we expect to hear, he says that any official who was in -- was testifying at that particular time that she did, which was on the 16th five days later, the 16th of september, five days after the attack, would have said the very same thing. it was based on the information that was known at that particular moment. you are already setting up, you know, some would say that the administration lied. in fact, chairman isa said that the administration misled people. now, patrick kennedy from the stat department, he is the under secretary for management, and he is saying no, that is what we knew at that particular point. there are some other interesting moments, fred, as we go through this. we can discuss it if you want, but i think that's one of the key things. >> it is, indeed. so we also just learned information that the white house has sent john brennan to libya. he has been meeting with senior libyan officia
. there is no question as senor corker said, at least by the momp ambassador,oric me ambassador to the u.n. everyone ew it wasn't true. that becomes the real question of why in the wld would an ambassador make a statement that was n supported en a few hos after thett rt spo fiayfter the attack. bill: you have three principle players here, you have susan rice, hillary clinton and the president, right? are you suggesting that any of these individuals, or all of them, lied about this? wl, ct w gng go f ssori rice' false statement. you have to understand something. the ason i called my committee back during the time when most members are home campaigning is because i thought it was so ri, usire that weet the refmbassies and consulates around the world and if this has been repeated even once, and i don't act quickly, then i failed to meet my obligation. if they need more resources, i need to make sure they ask for themnd tm. a ptefalngs told, effectively, don't even ask for more resources because we won't support that. you'll see that today in the hearingment. bill: if you believe you were misled and there
on in egypt, which was a protest. so that information took a couple days to clear. >> no, the u.n. secretary, ambassador rice, also talked about -- >> susan rice has a vulnerability here because she was doing that a couple of days into this and, you know, they've cited a cia analysis report which, you know, actually says there was a protest. a lot of people got the information wrong. part of the problem is at the root of your question, which is this needs to be an investigation into the facts and what it's come to is a debate on politics in a presidential election. >> john miller, thanks, john. >>> new poll numbers show just how much the presidential race has turned around in the past week. the latest gallup tracking poll shows 49% of likely voters favor mitt romney and 47% support president obama and two other polls from the key state of ohio shows the candidates are effectively tied. one of them shows romney ahead by one point and the other the president leads by 4. both men campaigned in ohio tuesday. jan crawford is covering the romney campaign in akron. good morning, jan. >> reporter: w
